WGNA In Albany Surprises Boy With Autism


It's the kind of community event only radio could pull off. And it's another sign of how country music artists always go the extra mile to take care of their fans. Townsquare's WGNA in Albany, New York and Luke Bryan pulled off a surprise for a 4-year-old name Riley, who has Asperger syndrome, that he will remember for the rest of his life. Riley loves Luke Bryan and he was able to talk to the superstar on the phone while visiting the station.

Riley's mom Marjorie wrote a letter to the station that said, ?When Riley pretends to be Luke, he is a whole other person. He not afraid or shy. He has confidence and feels free." WGNA invited Marjorie and Riley to come to the studio to talk about country music and autism along with being surprised by getting to talk to Bryan who even sang Riley's favorite song "Play it Again" to him on the air.
